Water Quality Workgroup

Potomac River Basin Drinking Water Source Protection Partnership

Jump to the Utility Spill Response Plan

Understanding which contaminants are in the river, where they are, and in what quantities is essential to addressing water quality concerns and protecting source waters. The Water Quality Workgroup addresses this need by maintaining a list of water quality resources and by helping other workgroups with analysis and mapping.
